Reading vs. Liverpool: Lineups

Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge both start for Liverpool as they take on Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

Anything but victory for the Royals would surely end their survival hopes, if they have not been already, but Pavel Pogrebnyak is handed a start as they look to achieve what would be a rare victory after some poor recent form.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are similarly running out of time for their Champions League hopes, and are also in need of a victory. Coutinho and Luis Suarez should lend them creativity and firepower up front, while Lucas, who recently signed a new long-term deal, also starts.

Reading starting line-up (4-5-1): Alex McCarthy; Chris Gunter, Sean Morrison, Adrian Mariappa, Stephen Kelly; Jem Karacan, Danny Guthrie; Jobi McAnuff, Noel Hunt, Gareth McCleary; Pavel Pogrebnyak

Liverpool starting line-up (4-3-3): Pepe Reina; Jose Enrique, Glen Johnson, Jamie Carragher, Daniel Agger; Lucas, Jordan Henderson, Steven Gerrard; Daniel Sturridge, Luis Suarez, Coutinho.
